Preacher on the Run…

Years ago I learned a simple method for studying the Bible. Almost immediately I began to implement this method for my own personal time in God’s Word. It would be only a short year or two after first hearing about this method, that I began to teach it to others. Five years after my initial enlightenment to this method I created my own little teaching booklet to be able to instruct others in this method. But it was not until today that I found the greatest resource in teaching this Bible study method.

With this tool, anyone can get to know the Lord Jesus by learning to study his word. OIA Bible study is a wonderful tool. And the best part about it…it’s completely free for print and distribution as well as digital download (epub and pdf). For many more resources and coaching on the OIA bible study method check out the website

As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

How did it all begin? How old is the earth? When did dinosaurs roam the earth? Did dinosaurs roam the earth? Why is there evil in the world? All of these questions and more really stem from the biblical study of the book of Genesis. Seeing that there are so many foundation questions brought up and answered in Genesis, Dallas Theological Seminary is letting you try a class in the book for free. That’s right…a seminary course for FREE!!!

This course is designed for those who want to: learn more about the first book of the Bible, grow in understanding of who God is and why He created you, deepen their walk with the Lord by applying the text to their life. It will be taught by Dr. James Allman, DTS professor of Old Testament Studies (I had Dr. Allman in class already, he is great).

Sign up for the course here. Enjoy the content, but more so the deepening of your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

The gospel of Matthew…check. The gospel of Mark…check. The gospel of Luke…check. The gospel of John…check. The gospel of Judas…? Are there more gospel accounts that should be included in the Bible but aren’t? How do we know only the 4 belong and are actually “God-breathed”? These are just some of the questions that will be answered if you “Would Like to Take a New Testament Course with Tim Challies“. Follow the link and the directions given there and you will receive a seminary level course titled Introducing the Gospels and Acts: Their Background, Nature, and Purpose  taught by Dr. Darrell Bock, research professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. It usually costs $229.99, but they are giving us access for free!

I hope you will consider taking this course. Again, simply click here and follow the directions given to join the group and start the class next Monday May 2nd.

And as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

Grace. A gift. A free gift. An unmerited, free gift. An undeserved, unmerited, free gift. An undeserved, unmerited, free gift of God. Grace. It is something Christians are great at talking about but not so good at practicing. So how does one go about not just speaking of grace, but actually giving grace. If you have ever asked this question. Or if you are someone who curiously wonders about developing habits of grace in your life. Maybe you just need a bit of encouragement to keep doing what you are doing. Regardless of the motivation, this 5 day email course by David Mathis sets out to recalibrate our thinking on the neglected topic of spiritual disciplines.  David will show us how to access 3 life-giving channels of God’s favor through daily habits of grace—simple patterns that help us know and enjoy Jesus better.

I have signed up and am 3 days in so far. They are short, succinct, challenging, and encouraging to my soul. So go for it. Sign up @ Cultivating Habits of Grace.

And as always, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

School, work, sports, meals, church activities, and all the errands of everyday life make anytime together as a family a struggle at best, and seemingly impossible at worst. So even the thought of having time everyday as a family in worship can seem insurmountable. But there is hope. You can do it. You and your family can worship together each day. And maybe you are a family who does worship together daily, but could use encouragement. Sign up here for a free, 5-day email course designed to teach you how to lead your family in worship every day.

I just did and I am praying you will join me in the course! And as always worship with a local body of the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.
